On the free weekend some of our group split off to visit relatives while the rest of us got full reign of the city. Outtatown took over the streets going from one end of the city to the other on foot. We visited all the major attractions including Stanley Park and the aquarium where to Jessica’s delight, we saw a sloth. On the other end of town, we walked through Gas Town where we saw the famous steam clock and some took the challenge and walked all around Granville Island.
And let’s not forget Science World although
others would say let’s forget. Whilst there they discovered that science was
not their forte they were reduced to watching a dinosaur movie and playing with
children’s toys. But in all honesty, it was directed towards a younger
audience (looks cool from the outside though!).
Others shopped till they
dropped, figuring out Halloween costumes for the upcoming weekend. This weekend
brought our community together as we had the freedom to explore the city on our
own and yet we did it together.
